I had read mixed reviews on this, but 4 of us decided to go, anyway. We were so glad we had ignored the negative reviews. There were some flaws in parts of the movie, but we were all captured by the action from a few minutes into the movie and the tension never let go! Halle Berry is good. Abigail Breslin is good. The male psychopath was good. We did leave with some unanswered questions which could have better been answered in the movie, but all it did for us was to make for interesting speculation over dinner. As we left the theater, several people were having reactions similar to ours.
If I had any criticism, it would have been for the directing. A couple of scenes needed some fleshing out, but the criticism is not strong enough to keep me from recommending this movie. If you like intense, GO! (Not for kids or early adolescents!)

The excellent plot, compelling performances by all the actors and the fast pace of the movie all contributed to making this a very good, non-stop thriller. Definitely worth seeing!

Don't waste your money! Run! away from this awful "thriller." The acting is poor, the plot line is stupid. Halle Berry should get 10 razzies for this one. It's a sad cross between Silence of the Lambs and Panic Room. It's unbelieveable. I can't believe 911 operators stand around observing one operator's trauma calls.The police send out darn near the entire force to catch the perp.This movie is AWFUL!! I give it two thumbs and eight fingers DOWN.

IF YOU WANT TO BE IN SUSPENSE THE ENTIRE MOVIE WITH A GREAT LEADING LADY AND A WONDERFUL TWIST ENDING SEE THIS MOVIE! THEY DON'T MAKE THRILLERS WITHOUT THE BLOOD AND GORE TYPE THEY KEEP SPITTING OUT...VERY WELL DONE.

This movie was very entertaining and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire movie. Halle Berry was excellent and did a great job in her role, I was still shaking as I walked out. It is great for adults but I would definitely not let my teenage daughter or children see it as she would never stay home alone again or go to the Mall alone ever again. The ending was perfect and a surprise. Not a movie for young girls.
